My Fiance had to goto the hospital few days ago because of stroke symptoms and periods of unresponsiveness. After 3 days, the only thing they could confirm was the ulceritive colitis and that the periods of unresponsiveness were called "psychogenic" seizures. She is conscious during this time, and can respond to directions (like squeezing my hand), but her face becomes paralyzed, thus unable to move eyes, or speak. She can also fully hear what is going on. Also, breathing is normal. After the 3 days, the hospital discharged her from the PCU because "we don't know what's wrong with her". CT, MRI, EEG and EKG came back "normal". Also, the weird thing is, something is making her thyroid levels perfectly normal -- not even the doctors know.
Some facts ::
- 22yrs old
- Has been diagnosed in the past with Hashimotos disease
- Has been diagnosed with ulceritive colitis.
- Had recent (within 5yrs) moderate brain trauma :: Moderate concussion.
- Has vertigo
- Has been diagnosed with diverticulitis.
- Has history of moderate-high general anxiety disorder & stress
- Recent episodes of depression.
I am really scared and worried because no one in the past 4 years i have known her has been able to figure this out. Yesterday, she had ~4 periods of "psychogenic seizures" in a row -- meaning, was able to be snapped out of it, but few seconds later fell back into it again.
Does anyone have any idea to what could be going on?
